    Default I'm in love with someone I've never met!

    Not sure if you all remember my fiasco with the referral to Dr Mohammed. We were wanting a referral to a developmental paed with the hope of getting a dx of Apraxia of Speech. DS is on a wait list to be assessed for receiving a voice-output device. I figure this dx should help seal the deal... and it can't hurt when looking for other services down the road.

    Well, after the referral to the "general" paed, Dr Mohammed called my Dr's office and told the to make the referral to Dr Frid or Dr Fox. (Thought that was very cool of him.)
    So, I get a call from my Dr today (Tanner's GP) that Dr Frid won't take the referral because it's not needed to get a referral to the Augmentative Communications Services at TVCC.
    ARGH. This whole referral thing has been a mess. The one writing the referral letters and passing info to my GP is NOT LISTENING to what we need. I told her AGAIN, and to call Dr Frid's office and see if they would take us. Well............

    Phone rings. Private Caller. I answer. It's Dr. Frid! I couldn't freakin' believe it! This woman took time out of her day to call me to see what was up. So I explained what we were looking for and why. She explained she has a 12 - 18 month waitlist and that DS will likely be assessed in the next few months (we've been on THAT waitlist since Sept 2008!). AND, it turns out that SHE signs off on the devices! She all but guaranteed DS would get one. I explained that I would still like a formal dx for other reasons, so she said she would COME. DOWN. AND. SEE. HIM. DURING. HIS. ASSESSMENT! All I need is a letter from his Speech Path that she is confident that DS has Apraxia, and she will pretty much give the dx! WOO HOO!

    squeaky wheel. just sayin'.
